The Hobson Plots

panoramic photo of a family grave siteI stitched together a series of photos to create this panoramic image of the Hobson family plots in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Va.  It just seemed like the perfect post for Halloween.

Like all the photos on my blog, you can click on it to see a larger version of the image.

Morning Flowers

Fountain at Sunrise

backlit photograph of a fountainWalking around the grounds of the Highland Meadow Vineyards on an early morning in September, I caught the sun beaming through the trees illuminating this fountain.


Wave of Cyclist

photograph of an approaching group of cyclistsIn every cycling event I’ve participated in, it seems like people ride in waves.  I got the impression these six cyclists were actually two groups of three that just happened to be riding at the same pace.


Tree Reflected in the River

Photograph of a tree and its reflection in the James RiverThis tree seems to own the end of this small island in the James River.  With the slow moving Autumn waters it seemed like an appropriate time to photograph the tree and its reflection in the river.

I merged two separate exposures to produce an HDR image that retained some foreground color but kept the sky from being washed out.


Gold and Red

photograph of yellow wildflowers with red leaves in the backgroundThese wildflowers already lost most of their pedals before I took this photograph.  I wanted to capture the bright yellow of the flowers against the backdrop of the red vine leaves climbing the tree in the background.


Magnolia Fruit

photograph of a magnolia coneThe magnolia fruit is always an early sign of fall.  The bright, warm color and soft texture of the cone contrast sharply with the dark, cool, shiny leaves of the tree.  This one was framed almost perfectly between two leaves.
